While Manganese Poisoning has been attributed to a number of causes [see causes], in the case of Ashtabula County, it is an incontrovertible fact MILLENNIUM INORGANIC CHEMICALS A CRISTAL CO, located at 2426 MIDDLE ROAD, ASHTABULA, OH 44004-3978, is one of the companies in the area which has been fined for years by the EPA for violating their permits regarding toxic releases. [Letter from the EPA]  

They have been documented lying about these releases and have shown no inclination to change.  This is, therefore, a clear instance of externalizing their costs in the interest of increasing profits instead of adhering to the minimal standards for ensuring public health.  

Facts on Treatment for Manganese Poisoning

The current mainstay of manganism treatment is levodopa and chelation with EDTA. Both have limited and at best transient efficacy. Replenishing the deficit of dopamine with levodopa has been shown to initially improve extrapyramidal symptoms, but the response to treatment goes down after 2 or 3 years, with worsening condition of the same patients noted even after 10 years since last exposure to manganese.   Enhanced excretion of manganese prompted by chelation therapy brings its blood levels down but the symptoms remain largely unchanged, raising questions about efficacy of this form of treatment.  The current mainstay of manganism treatment is levodopa and chelation with EDTA.
